We gess the Oystercard is the easiast way to get a long with London and dont blip the card when leaving. You have a good acess to the next bus and good sign so you know when to drop off.

I'd never used the London bus network before, but a signal failure on the Circle line meant that I had to take the plunge on my last visit. I was a bit nervous about not knowing the routes, or missing my stop, but then I...More

If you want to go fast, use the tube, If you have some time, go with the red double deck buses. If possible stay in front on the top floor. Kids loved it. And I really liked seeing the city from the bus.

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

‫hello Maggie, there are guides near every major bus terminal who can answer your questions (at least there were some during the summer tourist season). You can also ask at the information desk‬
